In the historic tradition of the woman’s obsession to make lists I present to you…
Jesse has discovered body parts and her favourite is your eyeball…not your eye, your eyeball!
Taken from the special needs idol Justin fletcher aka mr tumble! It’s the easiest way to focus the kids attention on something and the star can be replaced with a myriad of thing “toast”, “bed”, “tv”, “mommies sanity”…you get the picture.
Ouch! can cover many occasions such as being bitten, scratched, climbed on or kicked in the privates…very useful.
Thomas is a tricky engine! He can get himself lost very easy which causes much upset to Cody and can cause confusion and delay!
THIS can be anything. Drawing on the walls, puddles on the floor, milk all over the sofa, peas chucked on the floor, telly decorated in shaving form. The answer is normally a) the boy one or b) the girl one. It’s never me or lee!
Jesse uses this to communicate a rainbow of emotions from happy to downright Mardy!
Heard often when given an instruction or when something is not to his satisfaction. I’m really glad Cody has learnt this one and his eagerness to use in all situations is to be admired!
..off the window sill…off the computer desk….off the back of the sofa….off the top of the cupboard..normally ignored but worth saying so others think you are at least trying to be responsible!
This is normally used after a disastrous breakfast, lunch or dinner. It usually follows an episode of chasing them round the house with plate in hand, cleaning it up off the floor or whilst staring at the untouched plate of delicious food going cold on your tiny ikea kids dining table that they never sit at!
To avoid over use of this saying put down a bowl of twiglets instead.
And the number one saying in our house?
Asked continuously by us but never answered….kinda like “what is the meaning of life?!”
